Re: Two PCB –Phase/Clock Noise
Hi DaeJ, the AD9523 phase noise will defintely be affected by the jitter of its reference source.  The point here in this blog was not to evaluate the AD9523 jitter performance but rather to look at the effect of the output jitter (phase noise) on the SNR of the AD9643.  Also, you have a very good point with the PCB.  It is always important to consider good design practices when designing PCBs such that additional noise from other sources on the PCB do not impact the noise in the ADC.  I'd recommend looking back over some of my blogs related to ADC noise for some nuggets along those lines.  Thanks for the great comments!

Two PCB –Phase/Clock Noise
Firstly, it would be better to review other components with AD9523 in order to understand how SNR is affected in the test setup. Secondly, engineer might investigate Phase and Clock noise in different layer design of PCB board. For example, figure 2 shows that the number of input source is feeding into one of PCB, influencing the noise naturally.

Keeping the power supply inputs on separate domains can minimize crosstalk and make it much harder for noise to interfere with ADC performance.
As is typically the case, at least from my observance in the last four years, the second day of the show proved to be the busiest.
After a good first two days and very enjoyable evenings of the IMS show, it was time for the last day, when traffic is typically good in the morning but tapers off as the day moves toward lunch and beyond.
After a very eventful preparation and buildup to the IMS show this year, I’ll have to admit I was hoping for a smooth and uneventful show -- meaning no surprises resulting in something going wrong in the demonstration booth.
Once again I thought I'd do a series of blogs on my experiences as an applications engineer for a major semiconductor company, Analog Devices, at International Microwave Symposium (IMS).
